Australian artist-filmmaker Adam Sébire uses humour to approach the climate crisis at one of Iceland’s fastest-retreating glaciers, Breiðamerkurjökull.
Using time lapse cinematography, processes occurring in nonhuman time such as the movements of glaciers and icebergs — normally invisible to human perception — are suddenly revealed.
Its astonishing procession of beautiful calved icebergs is reimagined as a peak-oil, fossil-fuelled, over-the-top traffic jam. (Sound up for this one!)
Filmed, directed and edited by Adam Sébire. See more of Adam’s climate change video art series, “anthropoScenes”.
